Shelton Quarles Says Bucs Counting On WrightApril 23rd, 2013
Thinking/hoping the Bucs might not have their hearts and minds all-in with Eric Wright on the cornerback island opposite Darrelle Revis?
Well, former Bucs great and current coordinator of pro scouting Shelton Quarles says the Bucs are counting on Wright heavily. Joe believes Quarles’ words are the most candid admission to date that the New Schiano Order not only wants Wright around but believes plans to rely on him.
Speaking on WDAE-AM 620 this morning, the usually close-to-the-vest Quarles said Revis’ arrival puts Wright in the spotlight.
“It means the other guys will have many opportunities to get some picks. So we’re hoping that [Eric] Wright performs really well for us this year. We know he will. He has the talent, and we get some more interceptions,” Quarles said.
Joe gets the chills at the thought of the Bucs relying on Wright. Joe will feel a lot better if Ronde Barber returns and the Bucs draft a cornerback in the second round.
